Strat,
Your second link takes me to my own FB page. I looked for 'citizens for Quiet Skies and FB says DNE.
What is the actual name of the page?

It actually looks like the page has been taken down.

Sounds like they need to have a "Beech-18" boogie.

Better for it to be from non-skydiving planes, not based at that local airport, from all around the area, making low passes over her house over and over again, even late at night. The message would be, back off or you'll wish for the quiet skies you used to have. Her neighbors would also be pushing for her to stop making trouble.

Hmm, her profile lists Dade City, FL as her current home town... Someone get me an address and I'll see if I can swing by during my round-robin of airports tomorrow in the 172. Laugh

Wow, one of her friends suggested that she google "Denver Airport Conspiracy"...

She sounds like a very stable, sane person that the Mile-Hi folks should walk away from ...very ...slowly.

It seemed like there were a LOT of very recent comments from skydivers. She probably didn't like all the negative feedback on her advocacy page, and decided to take her toys and go home.

You've got to read some of the posts on the petition...apparently MHS is using jets too. CrazyCrazyCrazy
Does the city even have the authority to do that??

MHS review by city request

You can flag the petition as "commercial or spam". I think it easily qualifies as both.

Anyone care to suggest how I can poke fun at her/cause general annoyance from affar?

(live near an airport myself and love to hear the merlin engines on the spit which goes up to practice aerobatics right over my house).

Quote from one of the petitioners:

"This is driving people out of the area--we bought our home less than a year ago and want to move b/c of the destruction of our peace and quiet by this one company. They should be cited for disturbing the peace and shut down. Anyone else producing that kind of noise would be!"

It's attitudes like this that drive me crazy. Why the heck buy into a neighborhood that you clearly don't like, and then complain about the neighbors who were there for years before you?

As to marking it spam, something to consider is the " flag this petitioner as inappropriate" If everyone who reads this thread went and marked everyone of the signatures inappropriate -- just saying Sly A wrench in the works? I'm not sure how it works, but wouldn't it at least send a message that not everyone is in agreement?

Very good. Her neighbors may be the best weapon to push her to get back to the level of quiet skies they enjoy now. It would be great to know that a fly-over-thon will happen.

A plane pulling a banner would be great, or a skywriter! Laugh

Yep,
If you move where there's farms? You're gonna smell cow shit... Anyone who doesn't like that can leave.

Let's see. Mile High is an established, successful business w/a 15+ year history in the community. Who do you think generates more tax revenues, the big business, or some dumb bitch in a house? They formed an official group. So, the town is required to hear them squawk @a meeting or two. Money Talks. The town council cares a lot more about keeping that business operating, than a few bored nutcases. She won't get anything more than a new ulcer or two.

Map attached, so you can visualize the situation. The Mile-Hi airport is circled, and the complainent's home is at the red star. Not exactly like she lives right off the end of the runway...

It actually looks to be about 5 miles from the airport, straight-line distance, but this dingbat seems to be using road driving distance, which doesn't apply to airplanes. Doh! But even at 5-miles, the Otter is going to already be at, oh, about 6 or 7 thousand feet by then.

I hope that you all realize that using name calling tactics like calling her a 'dimwit' and a 'bitch' in a forum that is fairly easily accessed by the general public really paints skydivers as a whole in a terrible light. Argue with her stance, her fanatacism, her logic, etc, but name-calling only makes those using those terms look really juvenile.

That Bitch Gibbs bought her house in 2006, and lives EIGHT MILES from the airport, I would bet money that she gets more noise from transient airplanes than the mile high and boulder planes.

Well, she posted her contact info up on a public Yahoo groups page so I'd assume she wants to hear your opinions on the matter?

Since she is monitoring the radios and noting every time a plane goes up, she probably wouldn't mind if you give hear a call or email if you need to know how loud it was because you want to write a letter. Maybe you have bad hearing so you can't hear the planes but you still support her cause of shutting down business that people can hear or see from their homes?
